Digital Ear’s Full Burmester System

Burmester Audiosysteme was founded in 1977 and has since been producing top-range high end products in their Berlin manufacture. Their claim from the very beginning was to create the perfect combination between substantial sound, technological innovation and timeless design. Numerous awards from international experts have affirmed the company in its course. The legendary preamp 777 is the foundation of the Burmester story. It was named after its originating date – the year 1977 and the 7th month (July). This style of classification has been maintained up to the present day.

Burmester Audiosysteme operates in the field of creative tension between traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. In research and development as well as quality control we use the latest technologies and most advanced measuring techniques.

088: The 088 Preamplifier combines a considerable amount of technical finesse from the Reference Line, with the consolidated construction of the Top Line models. It benefits from distinguished developments that have already leveraged the Reference Line 077 Preamplifier to its extraordinary sound characteristics. With a perfect mergence of sound and design in combination with easy and intuitive controlling, the 088 guarantees sensuous and light-hearted listening pleasure.

089: The Top Line 089 Belt-Drive CD Player combines brand-new developments with distinguished technologies from our Reference Line products. The interplay between the Burmester-invented belt-drive, SRC-function to 96kHz/24bit or 192kHz/24bit with the according conversion, is regarded internationally as benchmark technology. The belt-driven CD Player has the advantage of decoupling the laser from the drive motor. As a result, the readout of the CD is significantly higher, because it is not afflicted with electrical jitter. The belt-drive is located in a solid, low-resonance chamber.

099: Aim of the new Classic Line Preamp 099 is to take account of the growing popularity of digital sources and to unite picture and sound. It is equipped with six digital inputs – 2 x RCA, 3 x TORX and 1 x USB. Therefore, it is suitable for a multitude of digital sources like digital satellite receivers, gaming consoles or your computer.

100: The Phono Preamp 100 is probably the world’s most comprehensive Phono Pre Amp available. A key feature never achieved before is the ability to professionally digitalize analogue records.

Burmester’s new Phono Preamp 100 is a highlight for all analogue-fans. The 100 is a reference to the successful Phono Preamp 838 from the 80’s. The final result is a return to the roots of Burmester’s story of success, combined with state of the art technology from the 21st century. The Phono Preamp 100 was designed to provide record-fans with an ultimate sound quality and a digital preservation of their tonal treasures.

B30: With its distinct but slender shape, the B30 is more than capable to fill large rooms with musical firework.

The timeless design of the new Burmester loudspeakers B20, B25 and B30 comes in elegant dark Macassar, bright and friendly Elsberry (genuine wood) or in a modern silver-metallic finish. All three models are easy to set up and can be integrated in virtually every living environment. They offer the same acoustic talents as the larger speakers from the B-series. Even spacious rooms are filled with pleasant full-bodied sound, despite their size.


B50: The B50 is closely related to our flagship loudspeaker B100 regarding sound as well as appearance.

Our aim was to realize the acoustic amenities of our reference speaker in a consolidated construction. Just like the B100, the B50 has a elaborated cabinet, which allocates a separate chamber, exclusively dampened, for the crossover.

B100: During performance, the B100 presents itself as an aesthetic speaker, which can be easily integrated into your living environment, despite its imposing dimensions.

Every single path of the 3-way B100 is separated from the other by phase-linear filters. Tweeter and mid-range are arranged in a d’Appolito configuration, which allows a balanced radiation, a high impulse consistency and relaxing long-term-listening. Even at highest levels the sound converters, having an imposing weight of 128 kg, never distort or fatigue the ear.

The Burmester line is now for demo in our Digital Ear showroom.  You'll hear it here first.
